Grand-Parentage testing is used when the sample for the alleged father cannot be obtained. The child is then compared to the alleged father's parents (the child's paternal grandmother and/or grandfather). Testing can be performed between the child and one grandparent, although we recommend providing samples from both the grandmother and the grandfather if available. If only one grandparent is available for testing we would then advise providing a sample from the available grandparent and the child's mother to improve the statistics and limit the chance of obtaining inconclusive results.
Unlike Paternity testing, Grand-Parentage testing is a second degree relationship and could require additional samples to obtain a conclusive result. The mother of the child is STRONGLY recommended for all relationship tests to improve the statistics and limit the possibility of additional testing.
Conclusive - Results that fall in the ranges of 0.00-9.99% or 90-99.99% provide enough statistical evidence to confidently report the results as excluded or cannot be excluded.
Inconclusive - Results that fall in the range of 10-89.99% do not provide enough statistical evidence to confidently report the results as excluded or cannot be excluded. At this time your results will recommend providing additional participants. This will help drive the results towards conclusive results.
Waiting to receive the results can be nerve racking and once you receive the results you can be overwhelmed by the numbers and scientific lingo. To help quickly understand we want to point out this easy identifier.
Probability (w=50) = 0.00-9.99% is on the unrelated end
Probability (w=50) = 10%-89.9% is inconclusive and additional parties are required
Probability (w=50) = 90.0-99.99% is on the related end
An Informational test is for your peace of mind and is not court admissible. You may perform the collection in the comfort of your own home or schedule an appointment with one of our certified collectors. No identification is required and results are ready within 1 business day of receipt of all participants' samples.
If you cannot collect a swab, you may submit a contact article. A contact article is anything the participant came into contact with other than a buccal swab. There is no guarantee a profile will be obtained from a contact article. We cannot determine if a profile is obtainable until all lab processes have been completed; therefore a refund will NOT be issued if the contact article produces no comparable profile. Cases that include contact articles have an extended turnaround time of 5 business days, and additional fees, please contact DNA Solutions to order your kit if you plan on using contact articles.
To ensure your privacy all kits are shipped in discreet FedEx packaging addressed from Fulfillment Department.
